Journalists; the world over are satisfied when their work yields positive results. Dedicated journalists find joy in the inky and less-rewarding profession when their efforts bring joy to society. Men and women of integrity in the profession keep-going, not because they are paid gargantuan salaries, but because the ills in society get uncovered and reformed.

Sadly, just as an ocean that cannot pride itself of harbouring only good and friendly aquatic animals, so is the vast and poorly regulated Ghanaian media unsurprisingly has a long queue of dishonest and bad nuts.

Fortunately, there are some good and selfless brains in the Ghanaian media. These men and women risk their lives for the betterment of the neglected citizens in society. They go undercover to expose rot for a favourable change.

Mr. President, you took over political power and promised to ensure law and order and total application of the rule of law regardless of who is involved. It’s however sad to state that the country is witnessing the opposite.

Your Excellency, your poor response to investigative works, especially from the camp of Anas Aremeyaw Anas is very bad. You are killing the spirit of the man and his team. I will reserve this topic for another day.

Just as we reward heroes and hardworking citizens for their selfless dedications and exceptional sacrifices, same vein is required to punish nation wreckers, evildoers and corrupt officials. 31st of October 2019, will forever remain in the minds of many Ghanaians as one of the dark days when justice delivery is tabled!

Mr. Emmanuel Otto-Boison; an interdicted Bolgatanga based state’s attorney was caught on camera taking goodies including a pregnant goat to free an INTERPOL wanted crime suspect.

The undercover investigative piece by EIB’s Edward Adeti dubbed “cash for justice” also saw the state legal representative coaching a supposed relative of the suspect how to avoid INTERPOL arrest.

Your Excellency, I am not sure if you have to give a zero attention to the documentary. The cry of innocent departed souls at the graveyards as well as those serving jail terms unjustly due to poor legal advice by the embattled upper East based state lawyer should be enough to wake you up from the gold-made bed in the jubilee house. Has your sister, the Attorney General briefed you as far as the stinking documentary is a concern?

The ‘powerful’ state lawyer who mysteriously fled the upper East Region prior to the airing of the documentary is also on interdiction.

The legal service board, in a crunch meeting under the chair of the Attorney General, recommended that the embattled state lawyer be made to face its disciplinary committee and that a report will be made available to the public within a month.

Sadly, Mr. President, barely six months after the committee; made-up of learned legal brains commenced its work, nothing has been heard of its outcome. The unwarranted tall list of unresolved state investigations keeps increasing. Citizens have now been reduced to spectators.

Mr. President, many have been cleared. Is Mr Boison going to join the gang of cleared nation wreckers? I am reliably informed that Mr. Boison is a staunch member of your party and a known party financier in the Awutu Senya constituency of the Central Region. If there is any iota of truth to this, then Mr. Boison is surely guaranteed of going unpunished. The committee that investigated the conduct of Mr. Boison did so at the expense of the poor taxpayers’ money. Citizens deserve to know the outcome of the committee’s work.

Your nonstop accusation of your predecessor as a corrupt fellow prior to the 2016 general elections contributed to your unimaginable and unforeseen victory. As you lunched your 2020 campaign manifesto, I humbly asked to know the whereabout of Emmanuel Otto-Boison.

I defeat the attempt to be reduced to a spectator! I am a valid citizen. Mr. President, speak on Mr. Boison’s saga before I tag you as a clearing agent. I will be back!
